Here are the highlights:
- Amanda Seyfried does a splendid job with her character/Jill.
- Nice to see the girl from TV Show Dexter in this movie.
- Suspenseful moments.
- Good pace.
- The ending is lackluster. It could've been more of a production in the end. Not so easily tied up considering the beginning/middle of the story were more complex and interesting.
- The casting seemed a little strange to me.
- Irrelevant and undeveloped characters. Is it just me but did anyone understand the purpose of the detective Peter Hood? Also, the serial killer character is seriously underdeveloped.
All in all, I think this movie is worth renting/watching, and I would it recommend to others. Is it worth buying for 19.99? No.
Amanda is a bit flighty when she goes to the police with her 1 hour missing sister story. Because there was no evidence from her last abduction...if fact it was contrary to her story, the police show reluctance to help Amanda, telling her to come back Monday if her sister is still missing. She also has a history of "Crying Wolf." Amanda is convinced it is the same guy who abducted her, and her sister is going to be killed tonight if she doesn't find her and the killer. Officer McKay seems willing to help, but his interest in Amanda comes across as less than professional and is suspect to anyone who watches these films. Molly's boyfriend (Sebastian Stan) has his doubts too and appears less than concerned as suspects mount. To add to that list of suspects there is the creepy neighbor as well as the creepy locksmiths.
Armed with information from the creepy neighbor and a .38 Amanda won't sleep until the abductor is found.
The ending was fine, but it needed a final Hitchcock twist. Seyfried looked stellar in a sea of prop actors.

Now I am not going to give away in spoilers in this review, but I will give you a brief synopsis of the movie which is as follows...
Jill, played by Seyfried, plays a young woman who is an emotional wreck after being abducted by a serial murderer the year before and narrowly escaping with her life. However, the police were never able to find any evidence of an actual abduction and they come to the conclusion that Jill had a mental breakdown and made up the entire incident due to the untimely death of both of her parents a few months prior to her alleged abduction. This results in her involuntary commitment to a mental hospital where everyone tries to convince her that nothing ever really happened and that she is merely making everything up in her own mind. Unable to get anyone to believe her, Jill sets out to try and find the place where she was being held and the man that put her there.Read more ›
